Are you trying to get away from your hectic weekdays and looking for a quiet and relaxing spot? If so, Karimun Java is one of the best places to go. You will hardly believe what such small islands can offer to you. There are white-sand beaches and palm trees and reef as the fringe, bright and clean turquoise water as far as the eyes can see, warm weather, and more than enough resorts or lodges for you to spend the rest of the day.
The Ideal Tropical Paradise
Located in Central Java, precisely about 90 km off the northern part of Central Java’s coastline, initially, Karimun Java was designated as a National Marine Park. The natural beauty is extraordinary; this is by far one of the most common reasons for tourists to visit this island, although there are many other reasons. However, fewer people means being less crowded and it will give you more private and relaxing atmosphere in enjoying the beauty of the islands.
Karimun Java consists of 27 small islands, with Karimunjawa and Kemujan as the main islands. The Karimunjawa Island is larger and it has everything to offer to backpackers or divers who enjoy both underwater and trekking activities. The landscape is quite hilly and steep in particular spots, with the highest peak is about 570 meters, and other peaks are about 150 meters or more. The idea of perfect vacation is about enjoying your free time to the fullest, and Karimunjawa is the perfect place for sunbathing at the daytime, or having romantic dinner at the local restaurant. If you visit the place during the non-peak season, it is most likely that you can wander around the island without being disturbed by other tourists.
Must-Try Activities in Karimum Java
What can you do once you land on the island? With so many marine populations under water, diving and snorkeling are the most favorite activities to spend the day. Take a plunge and enjoy yourself exploring the marine life such as the coral reefs or colorful fishes, the black coral or the organ pipe coral. If you want to experience a different diving sensation, try the wreck diving. The wreck of Panamian ship, Indono, in 1955 had become an ideal and healthy platform for the fish to grow. You can find the shipwreck dive spot around Kemojan Island.
Within about one hour of travel time with boat from Karimunjawa, you will discover a beautiful sandbank that only appears during the low tide called Gosong in the middle of the sea. This spot makes a perfect place to swim and capture the moment under stunning scenery. To get around the islands, you can rent a motorcycle or bicycle, and rent a local boat to get to other nearby islands. This will cost around Rp200.000,- for the whole day.
To fulfill your outdoor excitement, trekking is a challenging alternative that is not limited by height. You can trek the highest peak of the islands, enjoy the beautiful trekking panorama through the forest, and discover the tropical wildlife such as deer, long-tailed macaques, sea eagles, and various species of birds. After you spend the daytime exploring the islands, you can enjoy yourself in a relaxing afternoon, looking at the sunset from your resort or lodge. Some resorts also provide the tourist with diving activities as holiday package.
